Hednesford Town Football Club were today saddened to hear of the passing of long-time supporter and club stalwart Mr Trevor Hill.
Trevor, well-recognised for his flat cap and pleasant demeanour, was a Hednesford supporter since he was just eight-years-old, when his father first took him to watch the Pitmen in 1950.
He first volunteered to help light the coal-fired boilers at the Cross Keys to warm the dressing rooms on Tuesdays and Thursdays for training and Saturday match days during the 1960s.
In those days many of the volunteers multi-tasked, Trevor took his turn at the turnstile, selling raffle tickets as well as serving tea, after a stint behind the bar. It didn’t stop there either. Having joined the Supporters’ Committee, he not only became their treasurer but then linked that responsibility with that of being the Football Club Treasurer also.
Trevor was a regular home and away supporter, being a Travel Club Gold Member, buying a programme wherever he went.
Having chalked up 65 years of Hednesford support, he will be sadly missed by all his friends at Keys Park and our condolences go to his family.
